Our selection this month is Dreamers and Deceivers: True Stories of the Heroes and Villians Who Made America by Glenn Beck.

“Everyone has heard of a Ponzi scheme, but do you know what Charles Ponzi actually did to make his name synonymous with fraud? Credit for inventing radio usually goes to Marconi or David Sarnoff and RCA, but if you’ve never heard of Edwin Armstrong or Lee de Forest, you know only half the story.”  Publisher Description

Our selection this month is Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow.

In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is “a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.”    Barnes & Noble

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers welcome.
